from the national institute of health, and michelle from u.n. aids, and debra who is carrying on the great work as the acting global aids coordinator and many friends from the philanthropic world including bill gates, so, thank you, all, for joining us here today. every year, this is a moment to reflect on how far we've come since early days of the aids end epidemic, and those of you who lived through it remember all too well the fear and the stigma and how hard people with hiv had to fight to be heard or be treated with decent compassion. you remember how little we knew how to prevent aids or how it treat it. what we knew is the devastation inflected, striking down vibrant men and women in the time of their lives spreading to city to city, country to country seemingly overnight. today, that picture has transformed thanks to the courage and love of some of you in this room and around the world awareness soars, research surged, prevention, treatment, and care save millions of lives in the richest countries and the world's poorest countries as well. for many, with testing and ac

existing u.n. resolutions and previous violations by iran of its international obligations, that we don't recognize such a right, and if, by the way, negotiations break down, there will be no additional international recognition that's been obtained. so this deal goes away and we're back to where we were before the geneva agreement, subject -- and iran will continue to be subject to all the sanctions that we put in place in the past and we may seek additional ones. but i think what we have said is we can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections, but that permits iran to have a peaceful nuclear program. now, in terms of specifics, we know that they don't need to have an underground, fortified facility like fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they certainly don't need a heavy-water reactor at arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they don't need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have a limited, peaceful nuclear program. and so the quest

kerry's assertion that a decade ago iran possessed only 164 centrifuges. we know from u.n. inspections and other analyses by late 2007 iran had some 3,000 centrifuges. over the course of george w. bush's final 12 to 15 months in the white house, iran likely added to but did not quite double its arsenal of centrifuges and thus had perhaps 5,000 installed at the beginning of 2009. >> to the muslim world we take a new way forward. >> reporter: since barack obama became president then iran has installed roughly 14,000 sent fujs, about 74 pers the total on hand. >> the majority has taken place under president obama's watch, correct? >> i'd have to check on the specific numbers. >> you're not prepared to dispute that statement? >> james, i think what we're focused on at this point is the fact that we're now at a point where we are halting and rolling back the progress of their program and we're working towards a comprehensive agreement to bring an end to it. >> reporter: the white house repeated today that sanctions drove iran to the negotiating table but as kerry himself said in the clip we
is deeply militarily involved is the height of hypocracy. yesterday, the u.n. rights, said they are guilty and the highest responsible. >> that's the biggest form of extremism instruments having and seeing in syria that is responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 people. so it's the height of hypocracy for the foreign minister to complain about he knew treme whichl his government is backing the most extremist players in syria today. >> the charm offensive continues. are people buying it and whether it will work? we will stay on top of it. i hope you will join us again. great having you on the set. >>> moving on to another member of what former approximately george w. bush called the axis of evil, north korea where the country's second most powerful leader appears to have disappeared while a new hostage seems to make a coerced con sfeings. according to south korea's intelligence service, the number 2 after his nephew, kim jun un has been dropped from power after two deposit treys executed for corruption and anti-party activities. meanwhile, relatives say they are deeply worried about 85-y

the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask, why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naÏve, what i try to describe to them is not the choice between this deal and the ideal, but the choice between this deal and other alternatives. if i had an option, if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of their nuclear program, and foreswore the possibility of ever having a nuclear program, and, for that matter, got rid of all its military capabilities, i would take it. but -- >> next question -- >> but -- sorry, haim, i want to make sure everybody understands it -- that particular option is not available. and so as a consequence, what we have to do is to make a decision as to, given the o
